Paris

Visit Paris, Frances capital and largest city! One of the worlds leading cultural centres and ranked in the top three most influential countries in the world, there is no more exhilarating place to visit! You can fly with Austrian Airlines to Paris and when there do not miss out on a visit to the nineteenth-century opera house Opéra Garnier elegant and the sophisticated classical music played there. Or, if opera is not your thing, then make sure to check out the magnificent Eiffel Tower standing at 1063ft over the city centre of Paris. It offers some of the best views of the city centre allowing you to take in the true beauty of this great city! If you are interested in art, make sure to check out the Louvre which is the worlds most visited museum with some of the worlds most prized works of art on show. Forever emblematic in romantic hearts is the "City of Love". It is also held in history buffs' minds as a city rich with history, in the creative as abundant in art, and for fashion plates as the epitome of innovative haute couture. The most common and enriching destinations are the Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe, the Louvre Museum, the Notre Dame Cathedral, taking in a show at the Moulin Rouge or the Palais Garnier, enjoying an afternoon at the opulent and historic Versailles Palace, or just simply strolling across the bridges along the Seine River and taking in the local cuisine and wine. There are various ways to arrive, and it all depends on your own personal travel plans or budget. There are two primary airports: Charles de Gaulle (CDG), and Paris-Orly Airport (ORY). To make general flights to Paris search regardless of specific airport, use the city code 'PAR'. To better make the most of your budget, keep an eye out on flight and hotel packages and the exchange rates several months in advance to get a feel for the market fluctuations and when to strike on fares. Once in the city, start every morning with a cup of espresso and a crust of baguette, walk everywhere and take in the sights, and buy an affordable pass for their intricate and efficient metro system. Make use of 'S'il vous plait' and 'merci' often. The French aren't as snooty as they're said to be, but manners are always internationally appreciated. By the end, you will be sad to go.

Duo
It doesn't get more central than this! The location of the Duo in the heart of the Marais quarter, surrounded by restaurants, bars and boutiques, is not to be beaten. As hard as it is to leave this feelgood-hotel, go out and explore the very urban and unmistakably French Marais district.   Out of the once cool design hotel, renovation has turned the Duo into a stylish feelgood hotel. Modern decorations meet old frames and practical furnishings on wood-parquett floors out of the 18th century set the scene here at the Duo. The rooms are fantastic, but the most comfortable thing about this hotel is that shopaholics can drop off their shopping bags before heading off into the next boutique. Well, at least when you are in Marais to go shopping. Double rooms from ?200 a night.

Le Chocolat
At Le Chocolat Alain Ducasse in Paris you can dive into a world of chocolate. Wholeheartedly. Cocoa beans from all over the world - from Peru to Vietnam - are transformed by Nicolas Berger, chef confectioner at Alain Ducasse's worldwide gourmet empire on Rue de la Roquette, into chocolate truffles, bars or ganache.   For his restaurants Ducasse wanted his own chocolate line, beyond industrially produced chocolate masses. That's how the manufacture came into existence, where he serves as the artistic mastermind of taste. Berger provides for the sweet fine-tuning. In a former bank branch behind thick steel doors Berger experiments with an old coffee bean roaster. Not only the equipment is ancient which was specially made for the manufacture, also the interior of the chocolaterie has an antique touch. Both Berger and Ducasse are vintage fans. At Le Chocolat they fulfil their chocolatey promise of felicity - at 100 per cent.

Champs Elysées
A stroll over the Champs Elysées is not to be missed. There's countless noble boutiques and trendy people to be seen. Shiny eyes are on the cards, and once you've had enough of looking at the luxury on display, then you've probably already reached the Arc de Triomphe. Only a few take the time to ascend the arches, probably because of the 300 steps involved. However, the view from the Arc de Triomphe is almost better than the Eiffel Tower. The city doesn't seem so far away from the 50 metre height and you can still spot all the sights with ease. Inside the arch, there's a museum dedicated to the city's history and a changing historical exhibition.

Pink Flamingo
If you've had enough of haute cuisine and endless courses, then maybe it's high time for a pizza. The Pink Flamingo is brightly coloured, kitschy and has the ambience of a neighbourhood snackbar.   Even if you're not well known in the local area, you are always welcome here. The pizzas are tasty and creative and are named after well-known personalities like; La Basquiat, La Bjork and La Che. A nice idea is the picnick service. Just order your pizza and wine and the counter. Then take your pink balloon outside and find yourself a spot in the sun. The only restriction: you have to pick somewhere within sight of the pizzeria. But that shouldn't be a problem, as there are plenty of great places o the Canal Saint-Martin. As long as your balloon doesn't pop, your pizza should come to you. Hmmm!
